About AnarCon


Founded in 2015 on the principles of self-reliance and non-aggression, AnarCon is a celebration of liberty, self-expression, and knowledge sharing. It’s a place to connect with like-minded individuals, learn something new, share skills, and have a little fun.

Grab your camping gear, bathing suit, guns for the range, and road trip buddy, and join us in celebrating AnarCon’s 7th year!

Agorists, Artists, and Educators Welcome!

Anyone is welcome to set up a booth or table and bring your wares. There are no vendor fees! If you’re interested in participating, please email info@anarcon.com with information regarding your business or wares. We can add you to the vendor list.

If you’re an artist and would like to share your talents, we’d love to hear from you. Whether you spin fire, play music, dance, or perform spoken word, please email info@anarcon.com and we can add you to our program.

If you’d like to put together a workshop, teach a class, or share a skill, we’d love to provide space and time for you to present. Please email info[at]anarcon[dot]com with information regarding your presentation.

Honey Badger Burn 

The honey badger is our mascot, and rightfully so! Every year we come together as a community to build an effigy in honor of the past year. Then we burn it! It’s a practice of release of renewal (plus it looks cool). Building the badger is a group process and anyone can pitch in. Look for Burn Captain, Michael, for instructions on where to start building and how to safely contribute. Bring something to burn or come ready to help build.

Target Range  

Remember when we said to bring your guns? We weren't kidding! On Saturday we roll out as a group to practice the art of self-defense. Arms Master, Kurt will meet with everyone beforehand to provide a firearms safety course, shooting tips, and lessons to newbies. He's also the person to go to if you're interested in building your own gun. So if you've never fired a gun before this is the perfect place and opportunity with friends to learn how.

His talk will be on 'Food Security Through Freedom': Much of our society thinks food security and safety come from government oversight, more regulations, and incentive payments. But in truth, this policy created a system of nutrient deficiency, super-bugs, and fragility. The solution is to re-imbed the butcher, baker, and candlestick maker in our food sheds, to Uberize our food system and unleash the innovative entrepreneurial power of choice in food production and processing. "Who owns my body?” is the ultimate question.
